What can I say about the Vineyard Inn and still try to be a little positive??? The location and the view are great. I loved sitting outside on the chairs looking out on the water. We had to sit outside to get away from the musty moldy smell in our room!!! I booked two rooms, one for my husband and I and another room for a couple who was traveling with us. Their room above the restaurant turned out to be OK after they finally got it cooled down. It was 100 degrees in their room upon check in. Checking in at the restaurant is also a joke since the staff we encountered was not helpful. Turns out I was paying for a higher price room but didn't get it. Only found that out when I called Pam to complain how we were treated when again we had to go to the restaurant and asked if they had a hair dryer. You would have thought we asked the girl for a space ship!! That place could be great if only they did a little tweaking to the rooms. The curtains on our sliding glass door did not cover the door. We had four inch cracks on each side if you pulled them to the center. Not good when you are on the first floor. Second, no mirrors in our room except for the small mirror in the tiny bathroom. Two adults could not get ready at the same time. If only I had another area where I could dry my hair, curl it or put on makeup while my husband was in the bathroom! The mold smell is horrible especially after it rained one day. The carpet was soaked outside our door. Again, the other couple had no smell in their room but could have used another mirror and their curtains did close since they had french doors. No luggage racks to speak of, one would have been nice. And get a better place than the restaurant for check in!
